HYT H²0 »Mexico« Contemporary. Flowing. Meaningful.

Water and time separate HYT’s continent of origin from Mexico. Three unique HYT H²0 timepieces are uniting these elements and locations with special appearances at three Mexican exhibitions in September and October 2019 – the EMWA Fest, Berger Fest and SIAR.

For HYT, the flow of liquid and time really matters. This is the two-fold inspiration, essence and driver of the H²0, with its patented micro-fluidic module incorporating an exclusive APRP movement. A trio of one-off variations allies with the individual colors of the Mexican flag to localize the beautiful motion of time. For a watch capable of defying gravity, distance is just a walk in the park.

Radical perspectives on time

The H²0 offers radical perspectives on time, through 3D transparency and a shape resembling a smoothed stone, weathered to perfection. It showcases the essential HYT union of art and science, measuring the passage of time mesmerizingly using fluids. In the Mexico-inspired trio, black liquid traces elapsed time, while a see-through counterpart reflects what’s about to come. Pale green C7 Super-LumiNova®, underneath the capillary and on the numerals and hands, supports timekeeping after dark. Like a flourishing river, life does not stand still, so the present floats elegantly at the ever-changing meeting point of the past and future, day and night. The signature of each piece’s uniqueness is a color accent on the bezel in either red, white or green, teasing the enigmatic draw of a black case and strap.
 

The essence of flow

A cloche-like sapphire crystal offers an intriguing lateral view of the progress of time. This takes the memory to the pristine equipment of a science laboratory – and the imagination to the protective display of a precious work of art, in this case time. Viewed from the side, the skeleton digits, markers and directive arrows appear to be floating. In its entirety, the H²0 is an invitation to discover and explore new dimensions of encountering time and space in context – yours. The angled positioning of the two concertina bellows is the gateway to looking behind the scenes of temporality. A jumping minute hand, crown position indicator and thermal indicator are further elements of this live performance in a meticulously constructed theater of time. The H²0 traces and embraces the very essence of flow – even between continents.
